A Great Companion Feb 26, 2007
I'm a 38 year old seminarian. While I strongly suggest the ESV translation for Bible study (which provides word for word Greek to English translation), it is nice to have a NT Bible that is a thought by thought translation in contemporary language. No, if you are a student of the New Testament, you should not base your theology on this book, since the translation is very loose, but if you A) already know the Bible well via the ESV, NIV, KJV or Greek OR B) want to understand the basic concepts in the Bible, then this is a great book to have. He understands the general thoughts of what the Bible is teaching and he explains it in today's language. It's a GREAT travel or bedtime Bible. Don't let the Bible snobs tell you different. While this shouldn't be your only Biblical text, it should be one of them.
awesome first time study bible Dec 19, 2006
this was given to me as a present for graduating high school. i think its a great first idea to give anyone, but not so much appreciated by those that are older and already into reading the bible regularly.
this bible is great if you've never really gotten into reading the bible much because you found it too boring.
